Monrovia — There might be several political parties, some considered 'undesirable', but all are not rotten potatoes. There are a few that strive to distinguish themselves more by their deeds rather than mere words that they mean business not only for themselves as a serious political bloc but also reliable partner of the Liberian people in their yearning for a transformative society. More often than not, the political good news hardly get across as they confine their activities to the capital Monrovia and a few neighboring counties. The rest of the electorates in the countryside have to guess and figure out what ideological and development packages these political blocs have got for them. Liberty Party's political leader has broken the confinement and has begun combing the nearly isolated but critically vital Southeastern Region with a message. The Analyst reports.
Liberty Party's Political Leader, Cllr. Charles W. Brumskkine, on a nine-day tour of South-Eastern Liberia, has been explaining the party's agenda for the rebuilding of Liberia. The LP leader at separate reception programs in Greenville, Pleebo and Harper, told citizens that Liberty Party was founded out of the ashes of Liberia's prolonged civil war with a mission to explore new policy direction that would set Liberia on a progressive path of sustained growth and development.
The LP leader thanked southeasterners for their show of solidarity and praised their resilience in the midst of harsh economic conditions they are faced with. He assured them that with determined efforts on the part of all citizens across the country for a new Liberia secured in the four pillars built in the LP Platform, a new era of hope was on the horizon.
Elders in Greenville, Pleebo and Harper welcomed Cllr. Brumskine in the manner of the people, expressing joy that he was once more in their company since 2005. In reciprocal manner, the citizens praised the LP leader for his demonstration of maturity in Liberian politics, stressing that they have over the last eleven years learned the difficult lessons of their error and were prepared to look in a new direction.
Brumskine's message to the citizens is anchored in the four pillars (Four Rs) of the Liberty Party Platform including Reconciliation to ensure domestic peace, Reform to establish Justice and many more, Recoveryand Rebuilding.
To domesticate his message further, Cllr. Brumskine went to the core of some of the economic development issues facing Southeasterners. He made particular mention of the need to invest heavily in agriculture to ensure self-sufficiency; supporting and sustaining a value-added orientation in industries such as rubber and oil palm so as to produce materials locally, thereby creating more jobs for the people.
While in Maryland County, he spoke of the strategic nature of the twin Cities of Pleebo and Harper in terms of their population concentration. Brumskine went on to say that one of the ways to defeat poverty is by bringing the people together in large population centers, as such undertaking makes it possible for government to better deliver goods and services to them.
Cllr. Brumskine and entourage are headed for Fish Town where they will be for two days before cruising on to Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County for the final leg of the Southeastern tour. Partisans and supporters under the political leadership of former Foreign Minister, Hon. Thomas YayaNimely, are said to be engaged in massive mobilization effort substantially involving the Christian and Islamic Communities.
In a progressive report to the National headquarters, the local Chairman of Liberty Party in Grand Gedeh County, Mr. Thomas Pyne said the Fula Community made direct contribution of thirty (30) motor bikes to be used on the day of Cllr. Brumskine's arrival in Zwedru.
The visit of the Liberty Party Leader is in furtherance of the party's national outreach effort which is aimed at consolidating its membership base, motivating local party workers, and giving a message of hope to the citizens. The visit marks the beginning of a series of intensive outreach activities down the road to 2017.
